Fundraiser pic­tures dogs

South Waikato News - - NEWS - By MATHEW GROCOTT

Own­ers of white shep­herds have pro­duced a cal­en­dar in sup­port of Paws.

Pro­ceeds from the cal­en­dar, which fea­tures pho­tos of the dog breed, will go to the Paws de­sex­ing cam­paign.

The cal­en­dar was cre­ated by mem­bers of a club for own­ers of white shep­herds. Sev­eral own­ers and dogs were on hand to present a cheque for the $425 they had raised to de­lighted Paws chair­woman Meg Wil­son.

Ear­lier this year Paws made $5000 avail­able to sub­sidise the de­sex­ing of pets in the South Waikato.

The money was used within two days.

In 2011 Paws is aim­ing to triple the amount of money raised for its de­sex­ing cam­paign.

Club mem­ber Glo­ria Nat­trass said she was ‘‘just pleased’’ the club could do some­thing to help Paws, an an­i­mal wel­fare char­ity which works in the South Waikato.

She wished to thank all who bought the cal­en­dar.
